Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

A 50-year wine, this opaque purple-colored offering exhibits a strong, precise nose of black fruits, liquid minerals, smoke, and graphite. Extremely full-bodied, yet brilliantly delineated, powerful, and awesomely concentrated, it boasts a fabulous mid-palate as well as a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. This vin de garde requires 5-6 years of cellaring. A tour de force in winemaking, it has the potential to be the most profound Pavie ever produced, except for its two successors. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2045.

I have always found much to enjoy in this, Gerard Perse’s sophomore vintage. Now at 15 years of age it is maturing in pleasing fashion with slightly pinched blackberry fruit infused with black olive and iodine. There is real backbone on the palate: sensual dark cherry and kirsch fruit, touches of cassis coming through with great poise and refinement on the finish. Pretty irresistible now, though it should last another 15 years without too much problem. Tasted December 2012.
